Last weekend, I walked an official 10K race and if you don't know, that's a distance of 6.2 miles.
The race was the River Road Run held up here in Canyon Lake and it consisted of a half-marathon (13.1 miles), the 10K, and a 5K.
The day started off with packet pickup at 6:30 am while trying to stay warm and dry as it was 45F, foggy and dripping moisture. Being prepared, I was wearing leggings, t-shirt and a fleece pull-over as well as my Gore-Tex rain jacket, a poly socks and my walking boots which are water proof.
The half marathon took off at 8:00 am and since there is no walking category for any of the races, I asked the race director if I could be started after them since I was walking and the 10K did not start until 8:30. He said yes and at 8:15 am, I went through the starting gate and was on my way.
All the races went down River Road and back so we cross the Guadalupe river and wind through old growth oak trees with views of the river PLUS a few hills.
Here is a picture of the 10K course and a few I took of the race.
